    Honeybhealthy expiration date?

    Does anyone know how long you can keep using a jug of HBH? And do you need to keep it refrigerated?

    Re: Avoiding after swarms

    The old queen went into a nuc box with frames that had no queen cells AND she went to a different location, so the swarms were not from her.
    I did leave cells in the remaining hive so they would...

    Avoiding after swarms

    When I went into some of my hives in March I found queen cells. I thought I would try the approach of taking away the old queen and a few frames with bees to make them feel like they had swarmed...

    Re: Will mature queen pipe?

    I have a split raising its own queen and have heard piping now going on 7 days (the 'quacking' replies stopped after about the 3rd day). Does this mean she still hasn't gone on her mating flights?

    A hive with swarm cells and the old queen gone started piping and quacking. This has been going on for 5 days now. I thought is was something the first hatched queen did to locate the others. Does...
